Sometimes B manages a very nice surprise. On Friday night, he took me to see Bon Iver (3rd row center, hells yes!)....and it was sorta a perfect night in all the ways you hope for. We stopped at our favorite spot to get some wine and a bite to eat. Two seats at the bar were open. We drank delicious Sancerre, ate mussels, steak tartare and a little cheese plate. Then we headed downtown. We parked the car, took a walk past the place we shared our first kiss nine-plus years ago and headed over to Spreckels Theater. We walked in just as Bon Iver was going onstage. Show was amazing. Plus they played almost every song from their first album, which of course is how I fell in love with them in the first place. The only slight disappoint I had was that I was sending them E.S.P. messages like crazy to play my favorite cover ever, but my frequency must have been off. Usually when I try that hard things come through for me. ;-)
But! I found this new cover and it is as good IMHO. I just love that slow tempo. Plus I've had a soft spot in my heart for Bonnie Raitt since Nick of Time came out during my junior year of high school. This song gets me in my core in all sorts of ways. Oy. I think I may have listened to this song 47 times already. And isn't Justin's beard hot?
p.s. bon iver is on instagram (@boniver)...thought you fellow IG addicts might like to know!
